Simple symbols as keywords

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 89 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 89 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

I wonder why a new data type such as keyword object is necessary to
implement named optional parameters.
Aren't simple symbols enough to use as keywords?
